One of Home and Away‘s River Boys is apparently set to be brutally attacked and left for dead in a dramatic new storyline.

Heath, Brax or Casey will be set upon outside Angelo’s by a gang before being left in a forest, Digital Spy reports via TV Week.

Steve Peacocke, who plays Brax, reckons the boys’ dodgy dad Danny could have ordered the assault.

“You’d think with father and son that blood is thicker than water, but that’s why Brax is so afraid of him, he knows Danny would get rid of him in a heartbeat,” said Steve.

“Maybe taking Brax out of the equation is his way of having a relationship with the boys. No one knows how far Danny will go…”

Steve revealed that eldest son Brax gets frustrated when Danny, who has recently been released from prison, manages to persuade Heath and Casey that he’s changed his ways.

“Danny is the one Brax is truly afraid of, because he’s everything Brax could be, but doesn’t want to be,” Steve added.

“It’s completely frustrating for Brax, because he knows what this bloke is all about, yet neither of his brothers will take his word for it.”
